WHY JOIN?
Updated On: Jan 10, 2010

Have you joined Teamsters? If so, welcome to the strongest labor union in the United States. If not, what's holding you back?

The cost? A distrust of unions? Apathy?

For more than a century, Teamsters have been active in helping working men
and women across the United States. On the home front and the frontlines, Teamsters were an integral part of the United States' victories in both World Wars.  Teamsters were steadfast in demanding workers' rights, despite brutal physical attacks.  Teamsters marched for civil rights alongside their fellow workers when most were afraid to do so.  Because of their belief in the working men and women of this country, Teamsters were always there.

Teamsters are still active in community service and social causes.  We are committed to fighting for higher pay and better benefits.  Because we care, we're electing and supporting politicians who will look out for the good of the worker - you.  Teamsters will never stop supporting pro-labor legislation and defending the rights of the working man and woman.  

Today we are thankful that throughout history, Teamsters were unwilling to back down when our livelihoods were at stake, that the fear and ignorance of others didn't cloud their minds.  The hallmark pride and strength of the Teamsters lives on today, as we embrace "one member, one vote."  Let's work together, unified, to champion the rights of our brothers and sisters in the next century.
